Topic: PHP Tricks for RPG’ers: Graphics, Excel, PDFs, E-Mail and More

Speaker: Alan Seiden, founder of Seiden Group, award-winning speaker, “performance guru of PHP on IBM i.”

Session Abstract: Ever want to enhance RPG programs with PDFs, spreadsheets, charts and graphics, or connect to web services, without complicating your RPG program? Help is here from PHP and DB2. PHP not only builds web sites, but it can be called by RPG programs. Alan will show how to accomplish marvelous tasks by calling PHP from ordinary RPG programs via DB2’s web service support, a fast, flexible technique that’s a handy trick in itself.

Learning Objectives:

  1. How to use SQL to call a web service, including a simple PHP-based web service
  2. How RPG can use SQL to call the web service.
  3. Put it together: RPG calls PHP via a web service, creating graphical output from RPG in a simple manner

Who Should Attend:

  1. Those wishing to add non-traditional functionality to RPG programs without adding proprietary or complicated tools
  2. Web developers (PHP, Ruby, etc.) who want their scripts to be accessible from RPG.
  3. Fans of DB2 who wish to see a practical use of the new web service consumption capabilities of DB2.

Alan Seiden:

Alan Seiden founded Seiden Group to help IBM i shops design and implement high-performance web and mobile applications using PHP, DB2, RPG business logic and Zend Framework best practices. Alan and his team work closely with some of the best minds at both Zend and IBM on behalf of their clients.

With a passion for open source and community, Alan co-developed the popular PHP Toolkit with IBM. He was one of the first Zend Framework certified engineers; co-founder of the NYC Zend Framework Meetup; charter member of IBM/COMMON’s PHP Advisory Board; and a consultant for IBM’s manual PHP: Zend Core for i5/OS.

An award-winning speaker, Alan has been called “the performance guru of PHP on IBM i.”

He shares his expertise regularly at conferences and user groups such COMMON, ZendCon, the RPG & DB2 Summit, OMNI, the Northeast Users Group Conference, OCEAN and WMCPA. He also mentors other developers within the Club Seiden forum.
